Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second most respectable category was long-term care, but it nevertheless received just a D in that area. This ended up being a well below average score. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 74.62687 percent of its residents. This is pretty significantly below what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we scored is short-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in this area. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
